Shooting recently at the Missouri Botanical Garden was fun, easy and done very safely with our professional 2 man crew. Thanks everyone for all of your help. We did a quick scout and found three key locations. The first area we hovered about 100 feet, the second at 250 feet and the third at about 175 feet. All three angles turned in some nice aerial imagery in Saint Louis. We like to shoot as close to the FAA requirements as possible. The pilot always has his eyes on the drone and controls all movement. The navigator views the imagery from a hooded television monitor. The navigator stands always to the left of the pilot to guide them towards the proper shot. We stay away five miles from airports and below 400 feet.
